In a sleeper car of the Marseilles-Paris train a woman is strangled. The police investigate the compartment passengers, but the suspects are killed one after another. Based on Sébastien Japrisot’s novel (1962), Costa-Gavras’s playful and inventive noir – his debut feature film – includes a cast of established stars and emerging talents that went on to become part of film history.
